Very hands on with real-world examples, analysed from several perspectives including the entrepreneur. However hearing the view of the other parties (VC/lawyer) is what really makes you understand why things are going down the way they are.The whole book strikes me as very honest.
You can almost hear how Sean smiles as he captures the sarcastic moments in the book.
This could have been really boring info, but the author and narrator performed in a way that helps the listener learn a lot and have context for a frequently complex situation. Thanks so much!
This book is full, full, full of information you never knew you absolutely need to know if you want to be successful at raising funds as an entrepreneur. And more importantly, how to avoid getting screwed in the process.
No real life stories or references, which I thought it would be. Fell asleep many times listening to this. Too bad, I really wanted to learn, but can't do it sleeping.
this book does an incredible job at demystifying the world of venture capital. It provides a rare insight into how Venture capitalists think, make business decisions, and make money.
"People wished they could read such a book before experiencing the hard way."
That's totally right; the book explained the VC firm, funding game and so many insights not to make mistakes.
The use of BATNA while combined with book "getting to yes", became priceless.
In the early stage of developing the idea, I was full of dreams of grander and butterfly car doors. Although I could not comprehend some of the dry detail, I am grateful to be exposed to the knowledge and terms. Good reality check and good job with dry subject matter-hang in there, it was worth it for me.
